New ArduPilot documentation site

home_ardupilot.jpgIf you have visited recently you may have noticed you are redirected to our new documentation system on This is part of our on-going transformation of the ardupilot project that we announced in a previous post.

The new documentation system is based on sphinx and was designed by Hamish Willee. I think Hamish has done a fantastic job with the new site, creating something that will be easier to manage and update, while using less server resources which should make it more responsive for users.

Updates to the documentation will now be done via github pull requests, using the new ardupilot_wiki repository. That git will also host documentation issues, and includes all the issues from the old tracking repository imported to the new repository.

Many thanks to everyone who has helped with this conversion, including Hamish, Buzz, Jani and Peter.

We have endeavoured to make as many existing URLs auto-redirect to the correct URL on the new site, but there are bound to be some errors for which we apologise. If you find issues with the new site please either respond here or open an issue on the repository.

Happy flying!

  • Awsome!

  • Very nice & clean & scriptsfree site. Amazing job. Congrats!

  • Congrats! We also use GitHub based static docs and they are great. Static pages are fast. Code and documentation are side by side. I am sure that the amount of contributions to the wiki (pull-request now) will grow because of how easy it is to submit a change.

    Congratulations.. And the story continues.

    Like Tridge said, if you happen to find a link that does not work, please let us know. We try to fix all those as fast as possible but moving hundreds of pages and replacing thousands of links.. We might miss few :)

    This is first of many transfers so stay tuned...
